Arrietty is an evil movie, apparently...A few months back Fox News went after The Muppets for "promoting the liberal agenda" (whatever the **** that means this week). Miss Piggy got back at them with a scathing remark during an interview shortly after the controversy and we all had a laugh at Fox's expense. Well... Fox is at it again...Arrietty is an evil movie, apparently...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time they're going after Studio Ghibli's "The Secret World of Arrietty" and accusing, once again, that liberal Hollywood's agenda is corrupting children and turning them into "occu-toddlers." They also turned their sights on the new adaptation of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax. They claim that both movies "demonize the 1%" and that people "offended" by these movies should fight back by... littering. Don't believe me? Watch the video and get ready to facepalm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuFcWkFJZgk
Now I can understand (barely) how a conservative could possibly have an issue with The Lorax since it deals with criticizing the logging industry and promoting the dangers of excessive defore

EliseEnchanted has one of those galleries that is breath-takingly beautiful. Her work spans several genres and many categories here on deviantART but she is well known for her stunning and colourful macros. I was lucky enough to catch her for an interview some time ago and here are the results…
1) If you could bring one deceased legendary artist back to the current time, who would it be and why them?
I can't really think of one. I think I want to bring them all back alive because I think I could learn from all of them.
2) Who or what inspired you to take on the art form that you focus in?
One day I was walking home from work and I saw this amazing sunset, with beautiful light rays. And I was thinking: if only I could capture this moment to show it to others. That's where I decided I wanted to be in photography. I bought a camera 2 months after
Greetings from MoerasDear whom it may concern;Greetings from Moeras3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I’m very happy you have come here, for it proves you have shown interest in Moeras. This is of course not surprising, as I believe just about everyone eventually finds themselves drawn here. It’s a very peaceful place, yet at the same time can be as bustling as Cita Erbonde during a festival. Countless immigrants come here, so there is a mishmash of cultures in just a small marshland, but you’ll always be welcome here. Our patron legendary is Articuno, which is rumoured to fly over the region every few years and cause the snows to fall.
There are two, close to three, main sections of Moeras. My home, the town of Nreole, is the “capital” of one culture, and also the capital of the province. We’re the indigenous to Moeras, which can sometimes lead to harsh feelings to the immigrant-originated Olanites, but I’ll have you know I hold no such quarrel! In fact, all in all, we get along together in the end, espe

Seems I'm the kind of pony everypony should know.Twice in the past week I've had someone ask me about what sort of voodoo magic I used to become popular on Deviantart. So fine, I will tell you my exact strategy for this. Nevermind that I am not popular.Seems I'm the kind of pony everypony should know.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Step one: Figure out what is important in life.
For example, in the important column I have things like "my job" and "my family". In the unimportant column I have "how popular I am on deviantart".
Seriously. The number of fucks I give about pageviews is so low that I have them turned off. It's under settings somewhere. I forget exactly because I turned them off the moment they announced that as an option and never turned them back on. As such I have absolutely no idea how many pageviews or watchers I have. I cannot see them, for myself or anyone.
Note that this is not an invitation for you to tell me how many pageviews or watchers I have. I DON'T CARE.
Step two: Make art. And try to make good things.
I don't post much unfinished stuff to my main gallery and when I do I move

Life-Changing Moment, 8 Years Ago"So... how did you decide you wanted to get into the game industry?"Life-Changing Moment, 8 Years Ago9 months ago in Personal More Like This
More than once have I faced this question. I usually smile and say or type something like: "Oh, it's only natural. I've always liked games. I grew up playing games, attempted to design several board games, and even got a group of high school friends at lunch to play a game so broken that everybody died within a few turns." These are all true, except for the "only natural" part. I had spent several long years attempting to be "practical", suppressing my fantasy of becoming a manga artist of sorts each time it dared to bubble up. The decision to give game industry a try happened in one single moment, of which I remember clearly. It's the moment I consider life-changing, on a fundamental level.
It was in early 2007. I was months from graduating into the real world and ending my internship at Fossil HQ as a graphic designer. I was getting really bored of lining up text

New DA commission Widget...► The New DA commission Widget... and things you should know about it.New DA commission Widget...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As word of the new commission Widget spreads, so dose the thousands of questions that follow. As with the very popular DA point system I seem to get asked daily because of the point calculator app I created, questions like "Can I transfer points into cash?", "Can I write a mail order to DA to get points?" I can see this becoming another one of those things I should be in the know about. So here is what I've deduced after doing a bit of research on the new widget. Keep in mind I'm using usd based pricing in this journal.
► What is the commission Widget?
Its been around for about a month now, available to premium and beta tester users. DA just announced the feature today however here: http://fav.me/d5r2b2q It can be found in the misc. folder in your edit page widgets interface.

Regarding this weekus horribilusI've had a few people sending Notes or mails of concern. Thank you kindly for your care. I have friends and family in Paris who were pretty stressed out today - I don't live in the capital myself. The ''clear and present'' danger seems over, with the shooters killed by police this evening. It's been a long and antsy day with the double stand-offs and the 24-hours news channels and things seemingly shittier by the hour.Regarding this weekus horribilus9 months ago in Personal More Like This
As to the whole of the thing, I am still hurting. I hadn't met the Charlie cartoonists, but it feels like there was meant to be a ''yet'' at the end of that sentence, and now the field I work in has become a smaller, poorer place without those [in]famous names, and I will never share a glass of free wine with them at a random BD festival, caught between being star-struck and disapproving.

Before you throw that pity party read thisBeing in touch with your weaknesses is important in order to grow as an artist, but are you so hung up on what you can’t do well that it’s holding you back? I'm not talking about the intermittent (or frequent) attacks of complete blockage, or even lack of inspiration, but full out pity parties.Before you throw that pity party read this3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve seen far too many people on dA who post exercise after exercise, writing in the artist comments that once again they’ve failed, they’ve read hundreds of books, studied the masters for so many years, and they still cannot draw a photorealist rending of a man’s head. First of all let me say that I highly respect “self taught” artists and I’m not discouraging anyone who chooses (or must) go that route. However, setting realistic goals and finding your niche is extremely important. Let me say this: not everyone will be able to paint like a Baroque period artist! But that doesn't mean you can't be a painter, it just means
